3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

Pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of grass, strong herbal notes and pineapple. Flavour of strong herbal and grassy hops, slightly harsh grainy malts, pine, pineapple, caramel sweetness and surprisingly strong minerals. Has certain elements which are common on German hops.
